EGST 0225 - Institutional Racism in the U.S.

Credits: 3

This course will examine the historical basis of racial themes and attitudes in the U.S., analyze racist manifestation extant within contemporary institutions and propose some strategies for action which might lend themselves to easing and eventually eradicating the problem. Additionally, we will present selected theoretical frameworks or “analytical models” that have been developed - some of which have actually fanned the flames of racism more than subdued it⁠-to help provide students with a kid of graphic understanding of racial phenomena. Lastly, the terminal course objective will be synthesis of class learning and your own invaluable personal perspective in the form of a final paper or project based on your research and evaluation of a particular U.S. institution.

Prerequisites: EGST 0101  or permission of instructor.
